Jim Shiffer
Long-time Millersville assistant coach Jim Shiffer has returned to the football program in 2011 and is entering his second consecutive season on staff in 2012. He previously served as the team's offensive line coach from 1994-2001.
Shiffer, a resident of Bird in Hand, Pa., brings a tremendous knowledge of the Division II level, especially in the PSAC where he coached at three schools for 18 seasons.
Most recently, Shiffer was the offensive line coach at Thaddeus Stevens College, developing five Seaboard Conference First Team selections and helping the team to a conference title in 2010.
Shiffer's coaching career began at Millersville. He served as a graduate assistant under the legendary Dr. Gene Carpenter from 1989-92 and earned his master's of education degree before coaching tight ends and the offensive line at Pittsburgh in 1993-94. Shiffer returned to Millersville in 1994 as the recruiting coordinator and offensive line coach. During that time, he was a part of three PSAC East Championships and two NCAA Tournament appearances. His unit totaled 10 All-PSAC East honors.
In 2002, Shiffer took over the offensive line and recruiting coordinator responsibilities at Kutztown and worked with now-Millersville wide receivers coach Dave Keeney.
In 2004, Shiffer was hired as the head coach at Mansfield--his alma mater--and he remained in that position until 2006. As the head coach, Shiffer developed 16 All-PSAC East players and two Academic All-Americans.
Shiffer was a three-year letterwinner at Mansfield and team captain in 1987. He also starred at nearby Conestoga Valley High School.

Yet 2005 offers many positive opportunities, believes Mansfield's second-year head coach, Jim Shiffer.
"Every year expectations are high," he said.
He's made some good catches in preseason," Shiffer said.
"We're still evaluating," Shiffer said.
He learned a great deal from that situation," Shiffer said.
Shiffer, himself an offensive lineman for the Mountaineers from 1986 to 1988, said he's juggling lineups trying to get the best players on the field.
On defense, the biggest addition may be on the sideline, Shiffer said.Dave Likins takes over as defensive coordinator, and Shiffer said he has already made a difference.
Mansfield had just 10 quarterback sacks last year, and returning players accounted for just two.But this year's defense should be much more aggressive.
"We're running to the football, playing defense with great enthusiasm," Shiffer said.
We asked him to run sideline to sideline," Shiffer said.

During CJ's sophomore year, Shiffer convinced CJ to come out, not to play, but to be part of the team.
At first he worked as a filmer while helping coaches with drills on the field during spring practice.CJ returned in August where he was elevated to equipment guy.
Shiffer, himself a former football player for the Mountaineers, was willing to give him a chance.
But it would come with a catch.
He could practice as a player every day and suit up for home games, but he would be in his warm up suit on the sideline at away games, reverting back to his role as equipment guy instead of player.
He was just too valuable as the equipment guy.
All CJ wanted was the chance, and he literally jumped in with both feet.
He was rusty and out of shape after three years of not playing, but he knew the real test would be how he was treated by the players.
Would he be accepted or ridiculed?
He didn't have to wait long.
From the first practice, CJ was one of the guys.Instead of teasing him, the veterans looked out for him much as he had for them as the equipment guy.
They shouted encouragement and gave advice.When CJ had an interception in a preseason practice, he was mobbed as if he just won the Super Bowl.
Of course, he still had to do the laundry after that practice as well as after every game this season.
As he loads and unloads the machines with uniforms drenched with sweat, mud and blood, CJ still dreams of playing.
Mansfield was at West Chester on Saturady and CJ was the equipment guy, but he still has one more chance when the Mountaineers close out the season at Karl Van Norman Field this Saturday.
It's Senior Day, and CJ is one of 12 seniors who will be honored in pregame ceremonies, but he'll be thinking of something else as his name is announced.
